In general, and specific to Jacorb, what's the definition for:
ORB: Object Request Broker. Commonly, referrred to as the "broker."
The broker is what I would call the server. It runs the show.
POA: Portable Object Adapter: Runs on the broker. Splits the handler
into the Object and the Servant.
Object: resides in the client?
Servant: resides in the broker.
I'm just trying to understand the process a bit. On localhost, I have
no problem writing a small Java program of the hello world variety.
However, I cannot fathom how make a remote connection, nor do I see much
specific tutorial or information on making that seemingly small step.
Why is it a hurdle to make a remote connection?
So far I've been using Glassfish, but have hit a wall with
troubleshooting it. When it comes to Jacorb, assuming a starting point
of "hello world" with everything on the same JVM and the same hardware,
what's the next step to making a remote connection? With Jacorb, is it
simply a matter of specifying the hostname or address for the broker?
